Consultant association FCSI UK and Ireland is to produce the next Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) Guide to ‘Energy Efficiency in Commercial Kitchens’.
CIBSE Guides offer comprehensive technical guidance on key areas of building services engineering and are provided free of charge to the institute’s members. Non-members are also able to purchase guides from CIBSE.
Created to provide impartial best practice guidance, guides are drafted by industry experts and have to be fully assessed by CIBSE’s Knowledge Programme sub-Committee.
The new Energy Efficiency in Commercial Kitchens Guide will cover a broad range of topics including kitchen design, project considerations, refrigeration, warewashing, lighting and connectivity, and environmental considerations.
Twelve working groups have been set up and the FCSI has been delighted with the response it has received from organisations asked to support the creation of the new guide, which will combine the experience and knowledge of FCSI members, equipment manufacturers and technical advisors.
Matthew Merritt-Harrison, chair of the FCSI UK and Ireland, commented: “The FCSI and its members pride themselves on providing impartial best practice advice to clients and other organisations operating within the foodservice sector. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and expertise with CIBSE members and to working with CIBSE going forward.”
